This is a record setting January. WinSol is buried in a winter wonderland of snow with more on the way.
This is a record January with 237 inches beating the old record for January of 159 inches set in 1973.
The learning center dome has its first real test under heavy snows and seems to be holding up pretty good. We’ll see what the 72 hour snow fatigue does to the Cupola soon. It’s really a beautiful setting as long as one has adequate heating, food and water – AND – doesn’t need to go anywhere.
Feb 22nd update: Yep, it’s been a record snowfall for February also. Lake Tahoe lake level is at it’s highest level EVER. Kirkwood (my fav ski area) got over 72″ of new snow just
in the past 7 days.
I keep getting these email updates almost every other day of some ridiculous # of snow inches that just fell. When you gotta DIG OUT the chair lifts… what can I say:
Unfortunately, the Carson Spur and the ski resort itself is having open/close issues – and this veteran skier is only a blue-bird. Although I am on my 17th ski day already this year.
WinSol and the learning center came out of the deep snow just fine. There’s only one small leak on the cupola and NO cracking… whew… gotta but some acrylic bars across that this summer for the next big snow weirding.
